in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> that explanation byam ambassador rice continues to dog her. republicans on capitol hill john mccain telling fox news bill o'reilly rice failed to act. >> don't we all have a responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people and all five sunday morning shows for verifying those facts are true? there was class fighted information which she has access to which clearly contradicted that. she also by the way said al qaeda was decimated along with bin laden being killed. al qaeda is not decimated. al qaeda is roaring back in most parts of the mid eels. >>> the attack happened two months ago on september 11th. lindsay gram and kelly eye ott will meet with ambassador rice today. they will try to get to the bottom of the attacks on benghazi. the white house shows strong support for the ambassador. >> ambassador rice has done an excellent job for the united nations and is qualified for a number of positions in the foreign policy arena. i will leave it at that. >> president obama shows his support of susan rice as well. he had his first wh
of regional stability and peace. >> we start with nbc's jim macedo in cairo. who what are the details? >> reporter: well, steve, most importantly, starting at 2:00 p.m. as you mentioned israel stops all military action in israel and hamas stops launching rockets on israel and carrying out border attacks on israeli troops but this is the key thing. there is no signed formal agreement here. instead, israel and hamas reached an understanding, a kind of exchange of quiet for quiet. the first phase of a broader agreement. that should be followed by more intense negotiations, those will be anchored and guaranteed we understand by egypt and the united states. to try to resolve the key demands on both sides. of course, for hamas, the lifting of that 6-year-old blockade of gaza. for israel, it's stopping all the weapons smuggling. but neither will happen immediately. at least, however, they have agreed in principle to these demands and the need to work them out. you had a clip of secretary clinton. she went on to call the cease-fire deal a step in the right direction. she said she looks forwar
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. lou: ambassador rice made nearly identical false statements to four other networks the very same morning. three days later on the 19th of september the national counter-terrorism center director, matthew olson, told the senate homeland committee the attack on our diplomatic post in benghazi last week that took the lives of four americans including ambassador stevens is proof that acts of terror and violenence continued to threaten our citizens and interests around the world. why would president obama go in front of the united nations general assembly the following tuesday, september 205th and then blame the benghazi incident on the youtube video yet again if he already knew the incident had been incited by an offshoot of al qaeda in libya. >> the speech that justifies mindless violence. [applause] there are no words that xcuse the killing of incidence. no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. lou: why didn't anyone on the president's national security council in the intelligence community questio
in cairo after mohammed morsi taking total control of the country and won't answer to the branch of government. they are afraid the latest power grab will lead egypt away from democracy and back into a dictatorship and possibly all of the way to shirea law. >> nonislamist egyptian activist mohammed el baradei is calling on the united states to condemn morsi. i am hoping to see a strong statement of condemnation by the u.s., by europe and everybody who really cares about human dignity. democrat and chairman of the senate committee of armed services carl levin says america needs to play the middle. >> i think we have to be cautious. we doesn't want to see a democratically elected auto krat take the place of an unelected dictator which is the case before that. on the other hand there are real pluses here. >> they will push the white house to take a side. they need to condemn morsi and condemn him now. >> this is not what taxpayers expect and our dollars will be directly related to the progress toward democracy which he promised the people of egypt when your party was elected preside

this is the epicenter of the violence that is taking place, all eyes are in cairo, egypt. the head of egypt's intelligence has met with lead others palestinian factions. they say they're committed to a ceasefire under two conditions. one is that israel promises or at least pledges or guarantees that it will not resume targeted assassination and the deliberate killing of palestinian leaders and a lifting of the blockade and siege that has been imposed on gaza since 2006, which has restricted the free movement of people and goods and has really created a humanitarian crisis here. so they want to see that siege lifted. the egyptian, we understand, are expected to or may have actually communicated that to the israelis. and so it is now dependent on whether or not they can get the two sides to a cessation of hostilities, and when that time frame would unfold. so there is still no clear official timeline or clear answer, and no clear commitment from either side. but those interest demands as we understand them as they are being negotiated from the palestinian side. >> all right. live in gaza, tha
their children is our blood too. >> now to cairo and reza sayah, he joins me now. egypt condemns the israeli attacks, but so far says it will not break a long-standing agreement with israel. so what kind of bind is egyptian president morsi in over this conflict? >> reporter: well, he certainly has to walk a tight rope and mohamed morsi, the egyptian president is learning how quickly how difficult it is to be the president of egypt. here is why the situation is packed with so much drama and intrigue. for more than 30 years, mohamed morsi, a member of the muslim brotherhood and the movement were on the outside to israeli/palestinian conflict. they didn't have much of a role under the mubarak regime. then came the revolution, in came the muslim brotherhood, very influential in this current government, with the promise that they're going to change things, that they're no longer going to tolerate and put up with israeli aggression and oppression of the palestinians, and this is the promise that they have made so far. they have delivered a lot of rhetoric, condenecticudemnation seems like that's a
it is the cairo speech that you delivered in 2009 or your repeated and important declarations on prevention of iran's nuclear capabilities, actions matter most. don't mistake the former for the latter. and today i just have to step out of my role for a moment because as a historian today is the anniversary of my favorite ever presidential statement on the middle east. 70 years ago today, president franklin delano roosevelt issued the following statement for the people of the middle east. just imagine a president saying that. praise be to you and the name of god the passionate, the merciful. may god be upon you. this is a great day for you because behold a week, the american warriors have arrived. we have come here to fight the great jihad of freedom. we have come to set you free. today is the 70th anniversary of the landing on north africa and prisoner agreed jihad of american freedom once again but we don't remember that because words matter so much less than actions. if those are three broad lessons were the three most urgent issues on your agenda here won't repeat the words of my colleag

more on cairo, egypt. that's where intense negotiations are taking place as we understand it. egypt is trying to mediate a truce between palestinian factions and israel. hamas made clear it feels it is in the driver's seat here. it says it will not lay down its arms or stop firing rockets until israel blocks on the territory. it is securing guarantees from israel lit not target hamas or any other palestinian leaders as it did on wednesday p when it killed senior member of hamas' military wing. the israelis say that it is in the driver's seat. it would not stop its aerial assault and not stop possible ground invasion unless hamas halts all rocket fire into southern israel. obviously you can imagine difficult road ahead. right now egypt is meeting with other key players in the region. including the prime minister of turkey, u.n. secretary general moon as well as the prime minister. intense negotiations to avert a ground war in the coming day. >> entire world watching. thank you very much. >>> when we come back, one analyst says the recent sell-off in apple is insanely insane. he is go
that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy at cairo. we provided. the wee is the intelligence director. we use that information to discuss it intelligently. we continue to emphasize that the information gathered was preliminary and evil thing." end quote. i then asked ambassador patrick kennedy of the state department, who testified at the hearing, whether he had any reason to doubt that ambassador rice had relied on the information from the national intelligence director. he replied, "know, and misses morton. when i came up to give a briefing earlier this week, both of us were relying on the same information. if i or any other senior administration official, career or non-career, would have been on that television show other than susan rice, we would have said the same thing because we were drawing on the same intelligence information that was then available to us. this has been, as you all know, an evolving situation. what we knew that first week and that first weekend had evolved over time. we know much more now than we knew then. we have no rep
